On Monday, I am starting a new job: http://bit.ly/QPcedN - very excited!
I am happy to announce that starting next week, I will be working at New Kind. The decision to join New Kind was an easy one to make despite my love of working at Mozilla these last couple of years......

Good luck, man. Sounds like it might be interesting (impressive sounding job title -- try to use the power for good more often than evil).

Disgusted by the hypocrisy. Saddened by the institutional hate. NC used to be a place that would do its own thing despite its southern location. This amendment makes it one of a number of states intruding into people's lives and writing discrimination into its constitution. The support of so many churches and Christian leaders cements their place in a divided political spectrum instead of offering people a path to a better life.

We were better than this.

Laura Marling might be the best new songwriter I've heard in years.

Sign this White House petition to restore original copyright term (14 years plus 14-year renewal). If enough people sign, the administration has to at least respond. We all know that the response will be, "No way," but why not get yourself on the record anyway? I am.

At first I wasn't pleased with this shot as he wasnt making as much mist as when I first saw him. The more I look at it though, the more I like it.

Firefox 8, WebGL, and +ibiblio.org

http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2396043,00.asp

"On the WebGL hardware graphics acceleration front, Firefox 8 adds "support for Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS), which lets developers load WebGL textures from other domains in a secure way," Mozilla said. You can see some 3D examples of the technology on ibiblio.org. WebGL lets developers use standard JavaScript browser programming language to create interactive 3D graphics that run on the user's graphics hardware. Microsoft and Apple, however, consider WebGL a security risk. Internet Explorer 9 offers hardware acceleration based on Windows' latest DirectX APIs."

http://www.ibiblio.org/e-notes/webgl/webgl.htm Works great in Chrome now.

You can add Lasers to anything and it would automatically be cooler.

+Jonathan Blandford, actually it popped up in F16 beta. I could barely do anything online (browsing, mail, et al) until I disabled it. I should dig into it more, just haven't had time yet.
